You HAVE to communicate with your tutors and see what they have to say. They will not be understanding with you if your progress simply falls behind, but they will be very supportive and maybe even be able to offer some advice regarding your studies if you put them in the picture.

So talk to your tutor as soon as possible. I'm studying illustration and it's the same type of work and pressure as your major, so I do understand your stress. Remember, one step at a time. If you tackle everything at once things won't go so smoothly. Focus on the tasks that are most important first, and just keep in mind that if you keep stressing you won't get much done. Relax, and you'll produce. You'll figure things and hopefully your face will clear up before it's time to get a job, so don't worry about that for now. Worry about getting better, and about your studies.

Prickly's shopping suggestion was a good one. If you have any foods you've not opened yet and you have the receipts you can always try changing them for something else.

Berries and fruits except for pealed pears will provoke your DH. I know this will sound a little gross but chicken wings are not very expensive and they're quite fatty. I had a friend who wanted to gain weight so ate chicken wings with rice. Rice is also cheap.

I am emailing my teacher now to let him know my situation. My other teacher is already aware. I have a bunch of chicken and rice! But I cant eat that all day! I need something I can take with me on the go. I usually eat bananas when I'm on the run and I eat kale and broccoli for greens. I guess I can finish up the last of bananas and buy a few pears instead. However bananas don't cause we to break out no matter how many I eat.

I need something I can take with me on the go. I usually eat bananas when I'm on the run and I eat kale and broccoli for greens. I guess I can finish up the last of bananas and buy a few pears instead. However bananas don't cause we to break out no matter how many I eat.

Here is a list of fruits that are ok (ranging from none to low amount of sals):

Banana

Pealed Pear

Lime

Apple – golden delicious

Nashi Pears

Papaya

Paw Paw

Tamarillo

Broccoli is sadly high on sals so you don't want to buy that anymore.

As for veggies (also from none to low amount of sals):

Bamboo Shoots

Beans (dried – not borlotti)

Cabbage (green or white)

Celery

Green Split peas

Lentils (brown)

Lentils (red)

Lettuce (iceberg)

Peas (dried)

Potato (old/white and peeled)

Swede

Bean Sprouts

Borlotti beans

Brussels sprouts

Cabbage – red

Cauliflower

Chickpeas

Chives

Choko

Fresh Asparagus

Green Beans

Green Peas

Leek

Mung bean sprouts

Onion

Potato (white with peel)

Shallots

Yellow split peas

and veggies with medium sals, meaning you have to eat them in moderation:

Asparagus – tinned

Aubergine – peeled

Beetroot

Black Olives

Canned Asparagus

Carrot

Fresh Tomato

Frozen Spinach

Lettuce (other than iceberg)

Marrow

Mushrooms

Parsnips

Potato (new and red Pontiac)

Pumpkin

Snow Peas

Sprout

Sweet corn

Turnip

Beware though that you should avoid any beans, mushrooms, and cauliflower if you want to go on candida diet as well as sals.

As for the rice, you can have rice one day, potato another day, and so on. You can even try brown rice as a third alternative since it has a different flavor and consistency from white rice so it won't feel the same. Just make sure that the rice you're buying isn't mixed with barely or some glutenous grain.

If you're short on time make a large batch and then pack a small lunch every day with a fork. I know repeating what you eat is tedious, believe me I've gotten so sick of what I eat because I can count the things I eat on my fingers, but it's something you might have to put up with for a short while for the sake of feeling better.

If you get really bored of the repetitive foods, just post all the things you can eat on a forum post and ask for recipe suggestions. You'll get flooded with amazing ideas :-) and I speak from experience!

Poppy seeds, hazelnuts, cashews, Pecans and sunflower seeds are low sals. Those you can take with you anywhere.

Meat is low sal - take a bit of meat, low sal veg/fruit with you in a cold lunch box with an ice pack.

You could make homemade apple chips from a low sal apple variety.

If you have rice flour you could probably figure out a low sal/li chocolate (use cocoa) cookie, etc.

Nuts too :-) they're really expensive in Sweden but not sure how it is over there :-)

Do you have the recipe for the rice flower chocolate cookies :-O I wouldn't mind that one at all (if it's egg free and can substitute sugar with maple syrup)!

Here's one. Instead of full eggs you could do egg whites. Replace butter with shortening or oil (I think you'd reduce oil a bit if using). I'd refrigerate the dough before baking. You could add some cocoa. I'd use half the amount of maple syrup to sugar.

http://www.grouprecipes.com/64809/rice-flour-sugar-cookies.html

Here's another. Again, use egg white only or egg replacer (or whipped flax seed or chia seed). http://www.care2.com/greenliving/brown-rice-flour-cookies-no-gluten.html

What about kale?

I think kale is low but I'm not sure.. can't find much info about it

I can't find info on kale. Grr. Dani?

If you google "kale salicylate" you'll get lots of results. Sub kale for anything on the search and you'll likely find an answer. It seems sals levels are debated a bit, so if you're ok with something I'd use that info over a chart. Remember, they are cumulative and it may take a few days to see a reaction.

I only found one source stating it's low, but only one source isn't a positive answer for me.

That sounds like hives. Except the freckling part. Hives can be caused by anything/nothing. There are heat hives, cold hives, pressure hives, stress hives....do antihistimines help?

Maybe you should put this on another thread, Cougie...dovit can get more attention.

Oh wait! Lookie! http://www.bad.org.uk/Portals/_Bad/Patient%20Information%20Leaflets%20(PILs)/Urticaria%20Pigmentosa%20Update%20Jan%202012%20-%20lay%20reviewed%20Oct%202011.pdf

No...not hives, definatly not hives! Its litterally hundreds of bloodspots(pinpricks)right under the skin...like broken bloodvessels!( or a pin prick)....thats why I took intrest when pinpricks were mentioned! I've talked about it on other threads...noone knows what it is...this is the first time I've heard it mentioned by someone ELSE! Even my Dr. can't explain it...and He used to be a dermatologist before he took over my regular doctors practice! Fustrating! My skin itches like crazy...but NOT because of the spots...THAT comes and goes!The itching is something different all together!!!

Definately celiac related! :(:blink:

Oh...the link you posted didn't work...what was it for?

It's for urticaria pigmentosa. Uhm, I think it fits what you describe as a condition that turns into freckles. Why wouldn't it be hives? Hives act EXACTLY the way you describe. http://www.bad.org.uk/Portals/_Bad/Patient%20Information%20Leaflets%20(PILs)/Urticaria%20Pigmentosa%20Update%20Jan%202012%20-%20lay%20reviewed%20Oct%202011.pdf

Now, I don't deny it's probably gluten related...see, they generally don't know what triggers hives. Gluten could trigger hives.

You could also have DH plus hives. Which makes you very very very special. In a very unfortunate way....

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002437/

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urticaria_pigmentosa#section_4

You really need to get that first link to work since its the best description about freckles.

There's a cream you may try - its a mast cell stabilizer. I tried it for DH and helped a bit. It may help you. You make it at home. http://www.chronichives.com/pages/cromolyncream.htm

Maybe. Your phone could have 'sectioned' in such a way that the site didn't understand.

It literally looks like I got in a fight with a pincushin! and you can watch them apear like the stars coming out at dusk...first one...then two...then six...then twenty!Its crazy! The histimene part is the only part that might be a clue! Thanks for trying! And I've HAD Hives before...Inside...and out!That isn't it! I get Hives in my stomache from blueberries...and I get 'em in my intire intestinal tract when I get Glutened...(feels like BEESTINGERS...really hurts)...Couldn't figure out what it was at first...but the doc said..."oh yeah...thats hives!" :blink: ...Thanks Doc...thats alot of help! :lol:

    • Hey Deb, In theory (based on some studies), your small instestine should heal pretty fast (within weeks), but often there is collateral damage that can take longer (like your bone pain).  For me, personally, a gluten exposure can set me back three to six months.  My antibodies can last over a year.  And worse, I now developed autoimmune gastritis and hives.  Yikes!   I had  some hip and rib cage pain when I was first diagnosed.  Two months later I fractured some vertebrae.  I had been undiagnosed for so long, that I developed osteoporosis.  I assume that once on a gluten free diet, your pain should diminish based on a strict adherence to the diet and  your previous experience.   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
    • LexieA, This thread might help you. You say you never have "heartburn/GERD". You can have something called Silent Reflux. It  could also be NERD. some of these links are in this thread but I will post some releavent information in this reply as well. here is a good overview of the difference in this fox news article. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/13/gerd-or-nerd-new-type-acid-reflux-doesnt-respond-to-drugs.html but if your throwing up it is probably from Bile Relfux. . . . instead of acid reflux. I actually wrote a blog post on celiac.com about these conditions. the NYTimes article called Bile Reflux a "Shadowland" in Medicine and part of the reason for the title of the post. here is the NYtimes article about some of the issues you are describing. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html throwing up is actually a protective reaction. and this normally protect us from poison's or food poisioning etc. but when our biofeedack loop is broken down like having bile in the stomach instead of the small intestine . . . it can be hard to break this cycle. The green portion is probably the bile portion. It is actually very caustic as Plumbago pointed out.  this would/coul scald our insides (lower GI/Small Intestines). Normally stomach acid is neutralized by bile after it leaves the stomach . .. not while in the stomach. I wouldn't never recommend anybody do this on purpose . .. but if you are already puking your food up then simply buy a pH test kit. testing your food/chyme/puke (food outside the body) you will quickly get an idea of how acidic/basic your food chyme (digested food) is. It will almost be a pH of 4.0 or more. the paleo nurse explains this well why strong stomach acid is important to your health. http://thepaleonurse.com/the-truth-about-stomach-acid-why-low-stomach-acid-is-jeopardizing-your-health/ quoting the paleonurse. "In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food.  When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0" if it is a higher pH than this you can benefit from taking BetaineHCL to restore your stomach acid to more natural level. . . especially if you are not already taking PPI's since a proton pump inhibitor is lowering stomach acid. .. . by their very ability to cut off almost all stomach acid production. **** this is not medical advice I only know taking powdered stomach acid (BetaineHCL capsules)  helped me. I was not barfing my meals though. . . so your experience my be different. Maybe Ennis_tx will comment because he has some of the same symptom's/issues. But if I was puking I think I would be curios to know what my pH really is? And not Assume? anything at this point. If you test your stomach pH with easy to buy pH strips you will know whether it really is high pH (low stomach acid or a little stomach acid as your describe it) or low pH (really high stomach aid) that is causing the issue's. Once you know for sure you  will know who to go about correcting it. Supplementing with BetaineHCL is fairly harmless . . .unless you have an ulcer. And you will/would probably know it instantly if you take some BetaineHCL and it feels like someone is putting out a cigarette in the middle of your stomach.  It is acid burning your sore/ulcer. thankfully eating protein/food quickly neutralizes/raises stomach acid especially when taken with a glass of water. staying hydrated with a meal also helps improve digestion so be sure to take some water/drink like a tea or juice etc. for example if you want to the BetaineHCL to work properly. Milk has the opposite effect.  If you feel a burning milk can coat the lining of your stomach helping to erase/ease the effect of strong acid. And why people who eat hot **** five alarm peppers aka known as Hot heads keep milk close by if they need to dampen the fire in their stomachs from eating too many peppers. . . . and drinking water can aggravate this practice of eating the hottest peppers you can find. I hope this is helpful. I have rambled on long enough. be sure to read the sickboy user in the medhelp thread of how he helped his GERD/bile reflux. here is medhelp link for easy reference included in the "silent reflux" thread if you haven't read it yet. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/UNCONTROLLABLE-BILE-REFLUX-PLEASE-HELP/show/738242?page=1 he was suffering for 5 years and got better so don't lose hope. It can seem very daunting but people on this board do get better. we have used different methods but people do get better. again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me. good luck on your continued journey but it is not a long way back if you know the way. 2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4 3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (sufferer still suffering)   which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” posterboy by the grace of God,    
    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.
